Put it on your calendar today – Saturday, July 25th and Sunday, July 26th, 2020: this year’s edition of one of Texas’ premiere summer rides. This year’s registration will include a BBQ lunch for all Saturday ride registrants. And we’re bringing back the Steamboat Mountain Challenge Time Trial on Sunday along with the awards presentation and light brunch at Main Street Station in Buffalo Gap.
Throughout the period of uncertainty due to COVID-19 our event team has been communicating, getting expert advice, and developing contingency plans. Safety has always been the first concern, and we are now convinced that Tour de Gap can be held safely in regard to communicable disease concerns. In order to accomplish this, we will make significant changes in how the event is conducted this year. An updated list of the modifications is available here.
